Synopsis: Obesity is a thing of the past; it was eradicated at the cellular level, many generations ago. The populous is now healthy, beautiful and promiscuous, but all is not as it should be.
Ronald Calico is renowned for being the world’s only living obese man. He is the proprietor of Little Harajuku’s premier cuddle-lounge, the destination for those who crave intimacy.
He is 'The Surrogate,' and he has requested my presence, so that I may tell his story.
The Surrogate is a science fiction novella about sexuality, intimacy and the societal narrative behind the subjects deemed as 'taboo.' Also included is the short story entitled: 'Collector.' A story in it's own right, but also a teaser for Gavin's upcoming novel; 'Almost Surely.'
